Easter is coming



Not sure how I feel about this. But I find it sort of irresistably clever, no matter how also creepy and odd it is. Plus it reminded me of BJ Novak's expose on Conan O'Brien (sadly not available to watch anymore) about how Cadbury eggs have shrunk. They totally have! Of course my tolerance for the sickeningly-yet-so-good "goo" insides of Cadbury eggs has also shrunk, so I suppose it's all for the best.

those were kind of disturbing but also kind of awesome. strange ad campaign. kind of like "there's no wrong way to eat a reese's" but darker.

Easter eggs with suicidal tendencies? Dreams of resurrection? I dunno, but now I kinda want to try a hairdryer on a Cadbury Creme Egg.

I like the videos, except for the fact that everytime the egg squishes, I can almost taste that Cadbury cream egg overly sweet, grossness. Yes I know that's what they want, but it doesn't work with me. Just the opposite

that's brilliant! my favorite by far is the trash can squish, which makes me think of all sorts of morbid things. i won't share, because then people will think i'm disturbed. but you know, and i know, that really, i probably am.
